Pioneer’s deeper smartphone integration on the road
One way they’ll do that is with a Smart Cradle which will link the iPhone even more deeply into the car’s system.
The Smart Cradle will enhance the iPhone’s GPS performance as well as charge the device.
The App Mode feature, once the handbrake is fully engaged and the vehicle is in park, will enable drivers to view video content aboard the iPhone on their larger screen.
But another ability will be hearing your friends’ status updates and tweets through your car speakers.
The system uses text to speech technology to vocalise the updates for you rather than trying to read your mobile while you’re driving – a dangerous practice for you and others on the road.
